Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, exhilaratingly complex. Peach, mint, lily, roasted cacao nib, a hint of rye whisky in aroma and cup. The acidity is breathtakingly sweet and buoyantly light-footed; the mouthfeel full but lively. Flavor consolidates but rings on in a long, gentle finish.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the #18 coffee on Coffee Review’s ranking of the Top 30 Coffees of 2014. This Yirgacheffe is an extraordinarily refined version of a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees.
